BlockStarter – a platform for launching ICO campaigns and issuing tokens

What’s Blockstarter? In a nutshell, it is a “swiss knife” solution for ICO campaigns that we’re currently developing. Once released, Blockstarter will help you carry out a crowdsale campaign from A to Z: create smart contracts, generate an ERC20-compatible token, engage with investors and bounty hunters, raise funds and even find professional team members for your project. All this with zero actual coding: our advanced UI will allow any entrepreneur with a basic grasp of modern technology to launch a crowdsale.

Core features

Today you can issue tokens on a number of platforms like Ethereum, Waves, BitShares, NXT, NEO, etc. Still, there is a long way from issuing a token to concluding a successful campaign. There is also a room for improvement when it comes to communication between startups and the community. In order to address those issues, Blockstarter is developing an infrastructure that consists of two parts: Blockstarter Engine and Blockstarter Platform.


Blockstarter Engine

Blockstarter Engine is a reliable tool enabling startups to tackle technical issues associated with the ICO model. It covers reception of contributions in different cryptocurrencies, and transparent distribution of tokens accept after the campaign.

Campaign builder

You have an idea for a startup or even a working MVP? It’s time to describe it and show to the world. Meet Blockstarter’s Campaign Builder. There you can describe every single detail of your startup, from general info to the FAQ section. Sign in on the BlockStarter panel and check it out.


Contribution panel (wallet)

Once you have listed your campaign, it’s time to set up the wallet that will be receiving contributions from investors. Our contribution panel supports different coins: Ether, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, and Dash. It’s backed by highly scalable Nodejs lightweight server that can be deployed and redeployed very fast. The wallet issues Ethereum and Waves tokens. The server operates jointly with the crowdsale smart contract that processes incoming transactions and issues ERC20 tokens for your startup.


Smart contract generator for Ethereum

If you choose Ethereum as a platform for your tokens, BlockStarter can generate standard smart contracts for token and crowdsale. Multisig wallet is also supported as an option. Just fill in the form, and Blockstarter will generate a standard smart contract for your crowdsale.

Crowdsale smart contract can be notified about external transactions, such as those in Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dash or Dogecoin, via gateway functions built into the smart contract itself.

Our smart contracts have been audited by Oleksii Matiiasevych, a famous white hat hacker of Ambisafe.


Blockstarter Platform

Even the best product remains useless until the community knows about it. That is why Blockstarter is developing a platform that will let you communicate with your community. The users will be able to interact with the team behind any startup listed on the platform: from the first pitch of a startup to the final stage of the ICO, and even after the crowdsale.

Thus projects can receive the first feedback from their future users. This allows the developers to double check their ideas and have them tested. Users, on the other hand, will finally have an environment that enables them to understand which projects are worth their attention. They will be able to make a contribution to the project of their choosing by doing small tasks as a part of a bounty program or even join the project’s team.

List your startup

Blockstarter aims to create a great database of ICO campaigns that other up-and-coming entrepreneurs could learn from. Additionally, all campaigns that will be running on BlockStarter platform will be automatically listed on our ICO DB.

As a part of R&D for Blockstarter Platform, we have analyzed over 50 successful ICO campaigns to discover what they have in common. What we unveiled is available at http://icodb.net, which is a venue hosting the lists of startups for those who wish to learn more about the upcoming projects. However, this is only the first step to the creation of a fully fledged crowdsourcing platform for new projects.


A listing of ICO campaigns and a contribution panel (wallet) is just the beginning. We don’t want to be yet another cryptowallet similar to numerous other platforms. We want to create a real value for the cryptocommunity, and that’s why we introduce additional features. Here they are.

Speak your mind

If you are a community member you should be able to talk directly to project developers in a convenient way. The projects go to public because they want to share their ideas and to get as much feedback as they can in order to refine them. However, when you look at forum ANN threads you see that people have to ask the very same questions about the project again and again wasting a lot of time.

We want to develop a web interface where it will be easy to support a clear communication between a startup and its users. The platform users will be able to perform various interactions with a startup's team: eg. comment on a whitepaper, suggest an edit for a project's description or make a Q&A directly with founders.

Manage bounties

Tired of manual checking of bounty signatures on BitcoinTalk.org? We are going to make this process automatic. Have you ever thought of a tool that could manage all activities on your bounty tasks, provide feedback and automatically distribute tokens based on the quality of bounty hunters’ work? We are going to bring this solution to you. It’s called Bounty Manager.

Find new team members

One on the most crucial things for a startup is to have pros on its team. It’s a common problem especially when it comes to the crypto world where that usually lacks the amounts of expertise found in more traditional web development.

At Blockstarter we want to address this problem and implement a solution that will help you find professionals that will compliment your skills and create a world-class startup. The job board is designed for blockchain startups. It can enable them to find new employees once their ICO is over in just a couple of clicks. Isn’t it cool?

Discover blockchain events

Don’t miss an important blockchain event in your city. A calendar of blockchain events will present the complete list of upcoming conferences, meetups, and hackathons as announced at different websites like Eventbrite, Meetup, and Facebook. And, what is more, you will be able to post and promote your event at the Blockstarter platform.

Don’t miss a thing

Don’t miss a thing in the crypto community. Subscribe to what you care about, be it a startup, a person or a blockchain conference. Get notified about any updates and keep tabs on whatever you’re interested in.


ZBS token

Token name: BlockStarter Token
Symbol: ZBS
Total supply: 100 000 000
Platform: Ethereum

Usage of tokens:

The main purpose of ZBS token is to give access to BlockStarter features. When the platform is launched, you will be able to:
  • Publish of your campaign on Blockstarter.
  • Generate a contribution panel (wallet) supporting different coins like Ethereum, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, and Dash.
  • Generate smart contracts for your tokens and your crowdsale.

The more features are released on Blockstarter, the more functionality ZBS tokens will provide.

Presale

Start date:
2018

Amount of tokens to be sold:
About 10 to 20m ZBS tokens (10-20% of total supply).

Token price

The market-driven price of technical solutions for ICO launch currently varies from 5k to 50k USD. For that reason, the regular price of our solution comprises 10k USD.

During the presale you can have 20 to 40% discount. You will be able to buy an ICO launch for your startup for 8k USD or for 6k USD in case you are buying three and more ICO’s at once. The exact prices will be known at the start of the presale.

100 k tokens will let you launch one ICO.
200 k tokens will let you launch two ICOs and so on.
Therefore, if you buy more than 200,000 ZBS tokens you will get a 40% discount.

FAQ

Why do you use Ethereum as an ICO platform?

Even though there are other platforms that suit the requirements for an ICO, Ethereum is the most popular and demanded of them all. Additionally, ERC20 tokens that the platform employs are easy to list on different exchanges as the standard is supported by most exchange platforms today.

How do I integrate your solution?

You may host your ICO at Blockstarter’s website where you can activate a contribution panel. Alternatively, you may launch a standalone website for a crowdsale and use Blockstarter’s contribution panel as a white label. Thus, you may customize the entire appearance of the campaign to fit your company’s visual identity.

How does Blockstarter generate addresses for each investor?

Each investor has their own unique address that corresponds to the cryptocurrency they use. It is associated with a unique identifier. Blockstarter supplies an open source software that a startup holding an ICO may use. This software generates private keys and public addresses. The system requires only the public address to allow a transaction.

How do you ensure the safety of investments?

Blockstarter does not store private keys to the addresses generated for contributions. Therefore, in case the software is compromised or hacked, theft of investor funds is virtually impossible. Blockstarter knows only public addresses of the investors, which is required for balance checks.

Does Blockstarter accept other cryptocurrencies alongside Ether?

Yes. Aside from Ether, Blockstarter also accepts Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dash and Dogecoin. Still, it should be noted that no actual exchange takes place. The assets in their original cryptocurrency are stored at the accounts where investors have sent them. Further operations with those assets are within sole responsibility of the company that is holding respective ICO.

How an Ethereum smart contract can account for transactions in other cryptocurrencies?

Ethereum knows no other cryptocurrency than its native token. Still, there are many companies willing to accept something else alongside Ethers. For that purpose, Blockstarter notifies the campaign’s smart contract of external transactions in Ether equivalent per Poloniex exchange rate or the rate specified by the company that is holding respective ICO.

What’s the difference between investor and campaign wallets?

There are no profound differences as any transaction data is open due to the nature of blockchain technology. The only difference is that the campaign wallet offers stats and reports on the campaign.

BlockStarter was started earlier.
And we waited while similar projects warm up an audience.

So you think having others raise funds before you is a good thing? I must say however that being after allows you to do things better, that's a fact.

Yes, our platform is working in a beta mode. And we have clients that run ICO on our platform. They use it as a white label.
For example, this is one of our clients http://heroengine.world/
